Husemoens Gitarmakeri, Norway
The Norwegian Wood Series are made entirely from woods that grow in Norway. These handmade guitars combine maximum playability with a rich tone and a classic design.
The body has an ergonomic shape with a st-style elbow and belly cut. Also the neck joint is narrowed in for better access at the upper frets.
The neck is made of maple with a walnut fretboard, compound 9,5" to 12" radius and pearl dots. We have also added what we call a tilted fretboard, which means that the fretboard is tilted slightly towards the treble side and thereby reducing the angle on your left hand wrist.
The custom pickups from Edmire are hand wound by Eivind Indrevol in Tromsø, Norway. The neck and bridge pickups are incredibly well balanced and contribute to the instruments full and clear tone. We have also paid a lot of attention to the pickup placement to find the sweet spots.
